It's Stranger Things Day — here's what that means and how to celebrate...

Cover of Stranger Things season 1On Nov 6, 1983 Will Byers went missing. On Stranger Things Day, we honor him by dressing up, eating eggos, sending memes, and watching and reading strang(er) things.

According to E online, "This (third) season they came up with this arc and this idea that's so original and so new that and so fun. What I can tell you is this, we're kinda throwing out the model again and sort of expanding these characters in ways that you wouldn't expect them to go in, so there's a lot of new relationships that get set-up and a lot of new devices and a lot of new cinematic influences."
